I like going to places like that.
There’* an abandoned mental institution that closed down in the late 70'* near my house. And there is a large section of the philly naval yard that has been closed about the same amount of time. Both have over 10 buildings and are really eerie.

That'* pretty cool stuff. There'* a lot of abandoned buildings toward the inner city area of Detroit. A lot of people like to sneak in those places and take pictures.

That stuff would be a lot of fun.

i love going to places like that. Let me know if you are going to go again, i'd actually drive down to go with you.

We used to have an old TB hospital a mile and a half from my house. It was on Hospital Hill Rd and you got to the end of the road and it kinda went down in by the pump house and then up to the main building. It was kinda erie, but so cool. It was abandoned in the 80s. Still had all the Stainless Steel kitchen. Unfortunately, before I was able to get back and grab myself some of it, some kids decided to go smoking in it and burned half the building down. Then the Legislature put in an executive order to tear it down.

There are a couple abandoned houses up here in rochester and an abandoned subway I haven't gone all the way in that yet, but the section that is left is about 1/2 mile away.

Haha, there is a lawnmower on top of that building. Seems to be sort of new too?

Sampson State Park is about 5 minutes south of my parents place. The park was built on the grounds of an old Naval Training Facility turned Air Force Base. There are miles upon miles of near perfect roads throughout the woods and many buildings still standing. My friends and I would go down there in the spring and fall (while the park was closed to camping) and ride our go-carts on some of the oval parking areas. Man was that fun, but the place would get VERY freaky when it would start to get dark out. Plus, it was VERY hard to find your way out if it got totally dark. We ended up painting the roads at each of the turns with some reflective paint to mark the way out because we would be down there ALL day long driving around! Loads of fun!
